The River Basin Center awards the Butler Fellowship to an incoming master’s student every two years at the Odum School of Ecology. This funding is specific to projects collaborating with the River Basin Center on southeastern aquatic issues. To inquire further or learn about the application process, contact co-director Seth Wenger or communications coordinator Sarah Buckleitner.

In addition, the River Basin Center John Spencer Research Grants support graduate students affiliated with the RBC with small grants of up to $2,000. This program was launched in 2016 with a generous donation from Kathleen Amos, and is named in honor of her son, John Spencer, a former master’s student at the River Basin Center and Odum School of Ecology.

Donations to this fund are currently being accepted through the River Center Fund. Please include RBC Spencer Grants in the Special Instructions on page two of the form.
